Campaign Against ICE is Campaign for Open Borders

New York’s communist Mayor, Bill de Blasio, joined a growing list of Democratic figures Friday who want to abolish the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. While he thinks the United States needs some sort of immigration enforcement agency, de Blasio said “ICE’s time has come and gone.”

“We should abolish ICE, we should create something better, something different,” de Blasio said in his weekly appearance on WNYC’s “The Brian Lehrer Show.” “But in the way it’s developed, it has become a punitive, negative tool for division and it’s no longer acceptable.”

ICE was established in 2003 as one of several agencies under the then-newly created Department of Homeland Security. Some progressives argue it has morphed into an out-of-control deportation force that tramples on immigrants.

Tucker Carlson:

There was an ideological revolution on the Left this week. For months, progressives have called for the abolition of ICE. Without ICE, criminal aliens could stay here with impunity. They couldn’t be deported. Companies, meanwhile, could bring in an unlimited number of illegal workers, crashing wages for American citizens. But that’s the point, isn’t it? #Tucker

The growing movement to get rid of the agency has recently gained mainstream support from politicians such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old democratic socialist who defeated U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in this week’s Democratic congressional primary. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon supports abolishing ICE, but her primary opponent, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, does not.

New York’s junior U.S. senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, declared herself an ICE abolitionist on Thursday, saying the agency should be reimagined “under a new agency with a very different mission.”

“I believe that it has become a deportation force, and I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues,” Gillibrand told CNN.

Immigrant-rights advocates have been vociferous in their criticism of ICE under President Donald Trump’s administration. The agency has said it will arrest anyone in the U.S. illegally, and figures have shown an uptick in arrests of people without criminal convictions.

New York City is one of several so-called sanctuary cities that limit cooperation between local law enforcement and ICE.

Rabbi Waskow, above, says that ICE are the “real criminals”. Meanwhile Israel persecutes African migrants and other migrant workers. Non-Jews are not allowed to become citizens. Rabbi Waskow is a hypocrite for telling Americans not to “separate families.”

The NYPD in many cases does not honor ICE’s requests to hold arrested immigrants for deportation. But local authorities do hold immigrants if they have been convicted of one of serious or violent crimes within the last five years, or if ICE has a warrant signed by a judge.

The mayor’s support for abolishing ICE does not mean the city will stop turning over convicted immigrants, his press secretary, Eric Phillips, said on Twitter.

“Every country needs some kind of sensible, transparent immigration regulation,” de Blasio said. But ICE “has proven it can’t be that,” he added.

“ICE has been sent on a very negative, divisive mission and it cannot function the way it is,” the mayor said.

An ICE spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on de Blasio’s remarks.

    The FBI has become the judge and jury as well extremely bias, so do we dismantle them too and the CIA next? They neither one are transparent, both FBI and CIA hide things from the very people that pays them. Socialism doesn’t work we have to protect our borders our sovereignty our citizens leave ICE alone and shame! Shame! Shame! To the disgusting person for having put their ID out there endangering their lives and the lives of their family! Whoever did that crossed the boundaries, making you an enemy of the American citizens. Legal immigration gives a sense of pride sneaking in is makes one questionable as to why they snuck in as well a criminal. ICE isn’t the criminal that would be the illegal aliens. The greatest nation on earth has survived for nearly 300 years Socialism will rip apart our sovereignty why would you want to be enslaved?

    I know one thing that without ICE to round them up MS 13 will be coming to the street where you live. These left wing nuts probably have never thought of that they are to busy bashing Trump to even notice. On top of that we have Hamas which is a terrorists organization right in our back yard in South America they have been there since the 80’s coming across our open borders at will. They work with the drug cartels to actually fly them across to land in a out of the way small towns in New Mexico. From what I understand they come an go as they please visiting their counter parts here in the US. You can’t tell the Latinos from the terrorists they dress the same speak Spanish so just who will be there to stop the terrorists???? So is why we sure as hell don’t need open borders like the left wing nuts want.
